Believe and Bet on Yourself with Mario A. Bayne, Career Concepts for Youth, Inc.

In episode 11, Mario A. Bayne, founder and CEO of Career Concepts for Youth, Inc., joins me in the 3125 Studio to share how his lifelong dream to play professional baseball was shattered after a serious injury. But it didn’t keep him down.

After working in the hospitality industry, he took a chance and bet on himself. In 1991, he launched his nonprofit, Career Concepts for Youth, Inc., authored several books including his newest book titled Life Skills, and has impacted thousands of students by encouraging them to stay in school by demonstrating how education can lead to fulfilling careers and lives.

Tune into this inspirational podcast to hear Mario‘s story.

Side note: We experienced some technical difficulties with the sound that day (it happens!), but all good! Enjoy this episode! We hope it inspires you to keep betting on YOU!
